Fun at Lake Wheeler
SmugMug Daily Link
We had a picnic lunch at Lake Wheeler Park yesterday although it was only 52 degrees and there was a 10-15mph wind. It started out a bit cloudy, but thankfully the sun came out. I just wanted to get some fresh air and a bit of exercise and of course have a chance to take some pics. A sign said that they are closing the park playground in January and February to renovate it. I hope that means it will be even nicer when they are done.
I just couldn't resist posting the collage today. I loved those smiling faces and the red and green color coordination throughout. Every year I've taken an acorn shot of some type at this playground, so while the boys played I created the heart shot. Donnie thought it was sweet, and of course it was inspired by him:-)
There are a few other shots that I took that I liked:
Who are you looking at?!?
Can you believe there was a flower still blooming?!? A white coneflower variety I guess.
An overdone HDR but I still like it:
Some people were brave enough to be out on the lake:
They've built a really nice new fishing pier just like the one at Shearon Harris County Park. I loved the view back to the main park building (bathrooms/concession and rental stand). The sky was just gorgeous!
Donnie has been doing a great job inspiring and motivating Joey to be more active and to get more exercise. Joey is running some sprints now, and I think he's feeling pretty good about how he feels doing it.
